Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Georgia State AFL-CIO Ramps Up Political Action Among Local Union Members

2022 Union Member Issue Survey

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

On Saturday, Georgia State AFL-CIO Political Field Director Chris Daniel (RWDSU-UFCW, pictured above, at the podium) addressed some 40 members of Machinists (IAM) Local 709 in Marietta, Georgia. Daniel talked about the importance of member-to-member conversations at the workplace and asked each member to take the AFL-CIO’s member issues survey. He also asked for volunteers for upcoming labor walks to increase support for pro-worker candidates.
